That’s more like it.
With the Ducks (8-6-2, 6-1) leading 3 – 2 in the 4th, Ken Cool kit a bases clearing double to increase the lead to 6 – 2, and South Oakland of the North Side cruised to a 12 – 2 victory behind another strong pitching performance from Randy Patton.
Swartwout and Gwin had 3 hits a piece and every Duck reached base at least once.
Casale played an exceptional game at second, walked and scored 4 times and stole three bases.
On separate occasions, Begley was hit by a pitch and Moore walked and stole second.
The Ducks have won seven of their last nine games, and play Carrick again on Monday June 18th before resuming divisional play against a rejuvenated Black Sox team in Brookline on the 23rd.
